If you use SMS, the Automatically Configure Workstation Logon Scripts option allows SMS to update the Windows NT Server scripts for each user, and to amend the NetWare system logon scripts on all servers within the site. The SMS client software information is passed from the site server to the SMS logon servers. When a user logs on, the client software is installed, inventory is taken, and passed back to the SMS logon servers and from there to the database on the site server.
